  How do I work with a tight budget?
  • Always order your services before the discount deadlines.
  • Consolidate your freight and shrink wrap it to avoid additional material handling charges.
  • For large groups use shuttle transportation rather than individual taxi service.
  • Always bring back up supplies so you don’t have to rent them for a premium at the show.
  • Some items are cheaper to bring on your own rather than renting year after year every show. (i.e. power strips, extension cords, artificial plants, trash can etc.)
  • Consider the costs of rental displays, carpet and booth furnishing versus shipping and material handling charges for your own display.
  • Meet your freight target times (if applicable) and instruct your drivers to check in at the marshaling yard before the deadline time noted in the service manual to avoid additional surcharges.
  • For larger booths - ship hanging signs and carpet in advance to allow for straight-time installation when possible.
